This is one of the most disgusting, vile habits I've ever seen. I've walked my girls to school when I see guys and girls (where I live it's equal opportunity spittage) spitting on the ground right in front of us and had to navigate around it because the thought of walking through that nastiness makes me gag. This morning I was walking to the grocery store, minding my own business, when I heard that noise that only means you're getting ready to hawk up a lugy. Passing a second story building with an abuttment where the guy who was on the second floor couldn't see me until I was right under him, which is the time who chose to spit it out right on me and my beautiful new jacket that Jason gave me at the party. Thank goodness he didn't hit my face with that gross stuff when I happened to look up to say - wtf? And didn't even bother to apologize - just laughed. Can you all please try and be polite (if you're spitters) and make sure no one is in the way?
